Abstract

Purpose
The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) was approved for delivery in the UK in 2015 (IfATE, 2023). The CMDA offers future managers the opportunity to gain a recognised degree as well as the practical skills to thrive in today's competitive job market. A number of studies have been written on the development phase of the CMDA in various institutions, but to date no systematic review exists to provide an overview of commonalities and insights gained across these studies. This review aims to fill this gap.
Design/methodology/approach
A systematic literature review was used to identify studies written on the CMDA since its introduction. Twelve papers met our selection criteria, and thematic coding was used to analyse and present findings.
Findings
Findings were grouped into 5 themes: i) curriculum design; ii) programme delivery and support for apprentices; iii) portfolio of evidence and end-point assessment; iv) working with employers, and v) recruitment and onboarding.
Originality/value
This review is the first synthesis to date of literature written on the CMDA. Our analysis has allowed us to formulate recommendations for future practice that will be of use to providers in the next phase of the CMDA’s development.
